Kanchanpur, January 15
People’s representatives and the police administration have jointly launched a campaign to demolish chhau sheds in Kanchanpur district.
As many as 12 chhau huts were demolished in Bhimdatta Municipality in Kanchanpur as part of the drive. Ward Police Office Bhimdatta Municipality In-charge Inspector Rajesh Shahi informed that the drive had been launched in coordination with the ward offices.
Bhimdatta Municipality Ward No 3 Chair Ram Bahadur Japrel said the services and facilities provided by the ward office would be halted if the demolished chhau sheds were reconstructed.
